The story of the War of 1812-14 is told through the Loxley family.

As the war begins, the men of the family, join the militia to support Britain and guard their property against expansionist America. The characters allow for various battles and fronts of the war to be explained, as well as seeing the effects the war has on families wh...more
This graphic novel is a good introduction to a war that is not so well-known, the War of 1812, between the United States and Canada. It was released to tie in with 2012 being the bicentennial anniversary of the start of that war. I thought in parts it was a bit melodramatic, and the characters too impossibly square-jawed for reality, but I enjoyed it, nonetheless!
Pretty interesting graphic novel that follows one Canadian family through the War of 1812. It became the textbook for the portion of my Social Studies 10 class as we were studying the war.
Got this at the Calgary Comic Expo. Good read with a small history of 1812 included.
